It is often very difficult to find information and support when you are diagnosed with cancer, particularly a rare one. People find that they experience many different emotions, including anger, resentment, guilt, anxiety and fear. Many men especially find it difficult or embarrassing to talk about their breast cancer, because it more commonly affects women and is perceived as a womens disease. These are all normal reactions, and are part of the process many people go through in coming to terms with their illness.
Some people find it helpful to talk things over with their family doctor or nurse, or with one of our breast care nurses. Close friends and family members can also offer support.
If you have any questions or concerns about male breast cancer, please do not hesitate to contact one of our specialist breast care nurses for information or advice on 020 7563 1234.
